Product Description

The Ample Scientific SM-Plus-13 stereo microscope has binocular viewing heads, 30 LED bulbs for reflected and transmitted illumination, widefield 10XD eyepieces with a field number (FN) of 20 mm, and 1X and 3X objectives for total magnification of 10X and 30X. This microscope, with its stereo optical system, creates a three-dimensional image and enhances object or image resolution. It is commonly used by hobbyists, educators, and research professionals.

This microscope features binocular viewing heads to ease eye strain and provide a more comprehensive view. It has 55-75 mm interpupillary adjustment for individual eye spacing. Upper LED illumination reflects light off of the specimen, and lower LED illumination transmits light up through the specimen for enhanced visibility. Upper and lower illumination are each adjustable. The microscope has a dove-tail stand for durability that allows for one-handed operation. A handle fits easily in hand, and allows for safe and secure movement from one area to another. Stage clips hold the specimen in place.

*H is height, the vertical distance from the lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right; D is depth, the horizontal distance from front to back.

Microscopes are instruments used to enhance the resolution of an object or image. There are three types of microscopes: compound, stereo, or digital. Compound microscopes use a compound optical system with an objective lens and an eyepiece. Stereo microscopes show object depth in a three-dimensional image. Digital microscopes are used to display an image on a monitor, rather than looking through a lens. Microscopes can have monocular (one), binocular (two), or trinocular (three) eyepieces, with varying viewing abilities. A trinocular eyepiece is used to output digital images to an internal or external device such as a camera or monitor. Magnification ability refers to the size of an image. Resolution, also known as resolvant power, refers to the clarity of the image. The interaction between field of view (FOV), numerical aperture (NA), and working distance (WD) determines resolution. Microscopes can control magnification through a fixed focus, or through a range of adjustments. They can also use LED, fluorescent, and mirror light sources to help control viewing capabilities. Microscopes are widely used in education, lab research, biology, metallurgy, engineering, chemistry, manufacturing, and in the medical, forensic science, and veterinary industries.

Ample Scientific LLC manufactures laboratory equipment and supplies such as microscopes and centrifuges. Founded in 2009, and headquartered in Norcross, GA, Ample Scientific offers scientific equipment for research, educational, clinical and industrial applications.

I've had this binocular microscope almost 2-years and surprised how much I use it. The led lights are more than adequate. I originally purchased (hobby) for surface mount soldering on PCB's. I've also used it a number of times to locate and remove splinters.

- Nice size and I like the handle on top for quickly moving out of the work area.
- top and bottom light led adjustable lighting - more than adequate. Never replace a light bulb.
- Ability to shift (2 screws) the entire binoc/lamp up about 3" on the focus slide to accommodate a higher work surface.

- The double adjustment knobs at first had some play between left and right but this can be fixed by tightening up.

This is my first binocular stereo microscope and I am not an expert. It seems to have good clarity and flatness. I mostly use the 10X. The 30X is slightly darker but I don't think this is unusual.

This is a surprisingly good microscope at a very modest price point. Of course it is not industrial quality but for light duty it is better than adequate. Don't expect assembly instructions. If the user has some microscope experience assembly is intuitive. If not it could be a fiddle. The eye pieces are good. The working distance is fine and the depth f field is sufficient for inspection of small parts (i.e. Circuit boards).
ADDENDUM: I paid less than $60 for this scope 2 weeks ago. Now priced over $300? Still a good scope but at the new price you can do better.
